This download is of the Nakayoshi October 2012 issue.
Many of Naoko Takeuchi’s works, including Sailor Moon, were serialized by chapter in this monthly publication before being published by Kodansha in book format. These back issues of Nakayoshi are extremely difficult to find due to their age, the fact that the publisher does not allow for direct back issue re-ordering, and their rarity – many collectors in Japan prize these issues, especially when they feature famous artists such as Ms. Takeuchi.
This particular issue features an advertisement for the upcoming 2013 Sailor Moon animated series, as well as for the new DVD and manga box sets that are coming out later this year. This issue also features a chapter of the comic book series AKB48, modeled after the famous JPOP band.
